        }
 
 
 
        private void mergeRows(GridView gv)
        {
            string lastColumn1 = string.Empty;
            
            GridViewRow currentRow = null;
            GridViewRow tmp = null;
            var temp = tmp;
            var tempRow = MakeList_tmp(temp);
            System.Collections.Generic.List tempRows = new System.Collections.Generic.List();
            
            foreach (GridViewRow row in gv.Rows)
            {
                if (row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                {
                    string currentColumn1 = string.Empty;
                    currentColumn1 = Convert.ToString(row.Cells[0].Text);
 
                    if (currentRow == null)
                    {
 
                        currentRow = row;
                        lastColumn1 = Convert.ToString(row.Cells[0].Text);
 
                    }
 
 
                    else
                    {
                        if (lastColumn1 != currentColumn1)
                        {
 
                            currentRow.Cells[0].RowSpan = tempRows.Count + 1;

what about this:
public static List<T> MakeList_tmp<T>()   // if you need and argument, it shall by <T> temp and not T temp, AFAIK
        {
            List<T> newList = new List<T>();
            return newList;
        }
 
and later: 

     private void mergeRows(GridView gv)
        {
            string lastColumn1 = string.Empty;
            
            GridViewRow currentRow = null;
            GridViewRow tmp = null;
            List<GridViewRow> tempRows = MakeList_tmp();
            ...

So, if here

GridViewRow tmp = null;

List<GridViewRow> tempRows = MakeList_tmp();


i want to pass tmp with MakeList_tmp(tmp) so

how it should be written over here and how the argument will be passed to

the MakeList_temp() <----    function....

as I explained in the comment of the previous comment:
public static List<T> MakeList_tmp<T>(<T> tmp)

it is not accepting that...

<T> tmp -->  is not a valid argument.....

so is there any other way...
public static List<T> MakeList_tmp<T>(<T> tmp)   
{
    List<T> newList = new List<T>();
    return newList;
}
 
 
 
 
// Above code generates the error:->
 
// Compiler Error Message: CS1031: Type expected

sorry, in the method parameter data type, it's without the <>
public static List<T> MakeList_tmp<T>(T tmp)   
{
    List<T> newList = new List<T>();
    return newList;
}

now i got it it's working thanks a lot for your help


it will be called after binding the data to the data grid

other wise it will show the null reference error.

because it will not have any data into cells without binding..



thank you

again angel
